  1. I wonder why so many of the English WWII tank designs have such a WWI-like appearance, with the massive protruding tracks and antiquated designs. I've been inside several different English tanks of the WWII era and, from the point of view of the tank crew members I have to say that it seemed impossible to have functioned in just operating them, let alone fighting a battle in them. God bless those English tankers! – Wouldn't it have been easier and cheaper to have simply taken one of the captured German assault tanks with a proven successful design and then simplified the typical German over-engineering and worked from there to create the infantry tank/assault tank that they needed?

  2. Don't get me wrong. If I ever got over to Europe. I would love to visit your Museum. But I'd also love to visit your storage facility even more. my God all that armor in one place gives me a chub lol

  3. Isn't an infantry tank meant to accompany the infantry, giving them fire support and anti-tank capability, where an assault tank is intended to breach fortifications?

  4. Pity that the US didn't mass produce the T-14, up-gunned to a hi-vel 76 or a 90 with a Cat or International diesel to run with the Shermans. Maybe a few more Shermans (and their crews) would have survived. I know, against doctrine and limitations on shipping.
    Of course if the allies had taken Hitler seriously, he would have been assassinated by a Brown Shirt plant, you know…like Prince Ferdinand.

  5. 40 ton "heavy" tank with a short barrel 75mm gun. Ah, what a simpler time it was. It certainly would've been heavier, than tanks already being pulled from service, though 20 tons lighter than the Tiger. At least it would've been reliable.
